It is totally impossible - Journalist close to Lionel Messi rules out one club from race to sign the Argentine

Lionel Messi - Presentation at Paris Saint-Germain

Spanish football journalist Guillem Balague, who is close to Lionel Messi, has ruled out a move to NewellsOld Boysfor the PSG star. He claims that the Argentine wants to remain in Europe and play elite football for another couple of seasons.

Messi has admitted that it is his dream to play for Newells Old Boys before hanging up his boots. The PSG star never got to play for his hometown club as he moved to Barcelona at a young age.

Balague was speaking to the BBC when he claimed that Newells Old Boys are not in Messis plans right now. He believes there is no chance of a move happening this summer and said:

It is totally impossible that he goes to Newells Old Boys this summer, despite rumours. He wants to continue in elite football. He has not thought of going to Newells this summer and there has been no chance of that happening for next season.

However, the journalist has not ruled out a move toMLS. He claimed that the players camp have turned down an official offer fromInter Miami CF, but the MLS clubs sources are confident of a move.

Messis camp insist there is no official offer from Major League Soccer side Inter Miami yet, but Inter sources are confident they have put all their cards on the table for Messi and will wait for his decision.

Sergio Aguero hints at Lionel Messi joining Newells Old Boys

Sergio Aguero dropped a hint earlier this year by claiming that Messi was seriously considering a move back to Argentina.

He was swiftly stopped by Maxi Rodriguez, who brushed off the claims and said it is just a rumor. He added:

Kun is Kun. He cant keep quiet. We will see. It is hard to talk about this because then a giant ball of rumours is made. Lets wait and see what happens. We will not get ahead of the facts.

Lionel Messi could be back playing in a Newells Old Boys jersey this summer as there are plans for a testimonial match for Maxi Rodriguez.
